Union Government has said that they have no data to confirm that any outsider has purchased land post abrogation of article 370 in Jammu and Kashmir.
New Delhi based newspaper The Hindu has quoted the Ministry of Home Affairs giving this information to the parliamentary panel of the Home Ministry.
On the promise of government jobs the panel has been informed that although the government has identified over 22,000 government jobs but recruitment is yet to take place.
Giving the breakup of the jobs identified by the government the Ministry of Home Affairs panel was told that vacant jobs include only 533 gazetted posts and 21,846 Class IV posts.
Jammu and Kashmir after the pulling out of the support to the Mehbooba Mufti government by BJP has been under the central rule and on August 5, 2019, the union government not only abrogated article 370 but also reduced the erstwhile J&K state into two union territories.
It is in place to mention that there have been a lot of promises of thousands of government jobs for the people of Jammu and Kashmir. Former Governor Satya Pal Malik claimed that he will fill up 50000 jobs in Jammu and Kashmir and left without giving a job to a single person.
Similarly in the parliament in March 2020, the number of such vacancies stood at over 84,000 and promised that these jobs would be filled up soon.
